Smalltooth Sawfish

A Smalltooth Sawfish has a snout that is probably bigger than you. Their snout can grow up to 6.5 ft. (2m), making their entire body up to 20 ft. (6m) long. When it’s hungry, a Smalltooth sawfish will swim through a school of fish and swing its long snout back and forth to injure fish. Then, it scoops them up for dinner. Despite their crazy cool snouts, these relatives of the shark are one of the world’s most endangered species. Their primitive skeletons, made of cartilage (like your nose), don’t put up a fight against poachers, who hunt them for their prized snouts and fins (to make soup). Help the Smalltooth Sawfish survive by avoiding souvenirs made from animals and supporting laws that protect our fragile environment.
